Arizona Republican Anti-Gay Bill Attempts to Legalize Discrimination

Anti-gay bills abroad tied to US evangelicals
Jeff Sharlet, contributing editor for Harper’s magazine, talks with Rachel Maddow about the role of American evangelicals in drafting anti-gay laws world-wide.

Anti-gay discrimination passes AZ legislature
Arizona State Rep. Chad Campbell talks with Steve Kornacki about the opposition to the new Arizona anti-gay bill that can now only be stopped by a veto.

 

Imagine going to a restaurant, barber or hair salon, grocery store, auto repair or any other type of business you can think of and being told, “sorry we don’t serve gays, it’s against our religious beliefs”, just because the owner or sales person thinks you look gay.

That’s the type of country the USA would be if Republicans got their way.

If Arizona Republicans had gotten their way, that’s how things would have been in the State of Arizona.  Their law would also required you to pay the legal expenses of the business, if you wanted to sue the business for falsely discriminating against you to prove you weren’t gay.

This is  how the holocaust in Nazi Germany started.  It started with discrimination against the Jews.

Most Republicans are OK, fine with NSA spying on private citizens.  Republicans are passing laws in every state they control legislating what women can and cannot do with their own bodies.

The type of repression Republicans are engaging in is typical of Fascism.

Don’t be fooled, when you vote for Republicans, your voting for less freedom and more government.

Below is the list of Arizona Republicans who voted for the Arizona Anti-Gay Discrimination Bill

We need to send a message to these BIGOTS that Discrimination of ANY kind will NOT BE TOLERATED.

Each person who voted for this bill proved they don’t believe in democracy and should be VOTED OUT OF OFFICE!

If you find their action reprehensible, call them up and tell them what you think.  You can find their office phone numbers by searching for them on the internet.
